Prayer for a friend that wants children but cannot have them

[deleted account] ( 10 moms have responded )

I am asking for prayers for my best friend. Her and her husband have been trying for 3 years now to have children. They have had multitude of tests done and have been told over and over that a miracle would have to happen for them to conceive. They have begun the invitro-fertilization process and will know in early March if she is a good candidate for it. Please say prayers for her and her husband as they go through this difficult process.

Father, we ask mercy for Bree. We were created to long for children, and when it doesn't happen, we feel desolate, not quite womanly. We ask that You look down on her today and grant her petition, just as you did for Hannah, praying for a child (I Samuel 1). You have a plan for each of us, sometimes it's to have our own biological child, but sometimes it comes in different ways, adoption, foster care, etc. We ask that You speak to Bree and tell her clearly what her destiny is, then give her the faith to wait, if needed. Comfort her heart, Holy Spirit, and bring her peace, knowing You have her life in Your hand. Bind Bree and her husband together, to pray together for Your will. In Jesus' Name, amen.

Bree, both my daughters had fertility issues. They both went through IVF, which is terribly expensive, and failed. God was gracious to our oldest, and she had two beautiful children naturally. Our baby, however, had just too much damage, so God moved a miracle, and she is now mother to two beautiful children, siblings, that she and her husband adopted, a year apart. They are now 7 and 6, and you would NEVER know they were adopted, they are cherished as much as our bio grandchildren.

God knows what He's doing. It took a lot of faith and guts, but both women are happy mothers. Blood has little to do with loving a child. I pray you are answered quickly, and will too be a happy mom.

God bless, hon

I will pray for your best friend...One of my best friends has three little miracles she was told she would never have:)

I will be praying for them. Unfortunately I think we all know people who go through this...I am praying for a very special couple right now who has been trying for years and knows that God is in control but they are obviously still so upset that they don't have a child yet. God knows their hearts and the desires that they have!!! All my best to them!!

We went through this heartache with both our daughters. They both went through the invitro. One daughter got pregnant a year after the invitro, then quickly again after the 1st birth. The other one had too much damage. God directed them to adoption, and we gained two beautiful grandchildren. There are many, many children out there waiting for loving parents to claim them. There are also many agencies, like starting out as foster parents, a great back door, and it is not that expensive.

Sometimes the answer is no, and we are broken-hearted. But sometimes God has something better in mind for us. We are ALL thrilled with the adopted children, and could not possibly be more loved if they were 'natural' relatives. Love is love, and genes have very little to do with it. Good luck to your friend, God's Will be done.

Aw yes the bible describes that a unbarren women is the one person who is in most want of something. I will hold her up in prayer but to be honest I personally believe that if you can not conceive it is for some reason, also there is always the option of adoption but these days with the technilogical advancements people rather not take that into consideration. Which as a Christian to me is kinda a funny thought because in a way we are God's adopted children. Also I believe giving birth yes comes from the Father and the flesh but adoption is something as well in the bible we are called to do. Take care of the fatherless, and it comes from the heart.
But again I will pray that God makes a way for his will to be and his glory to come from any outcome and to give them peace

God Bless

God works miracles! My husband and I were told we could not have kids without the help of fertility drugs or other assistance. I didn't want to do that. I figured if God wanted me to have a child I would get pregnant. I actually gave up on the thought of ever being a mom. I had plenty of nieces and nephews I could spoil. Right after we celebrated our 8th anniversary (last April) we found out I was pregnant. My daughter is now 5 1/2 wks old. My cousin and her husband spent over $10,000 in 2008 on fertility drugs and they are expecting there daughter any day now.. I pray the the invitro works for your friend. God does work miracles with or without the help of medicine. God's timing is not always our timing. If this happens not to work there is always children out there who need loving families.

Prayers go to your best friend and hubby. That is hard when you want so badly to be parents but are having such a hard time doing so. God has the perfect plan for them. It may not be that "normal" way that we orignally plan for, but the way God brings a child into their lives will be the perfect way for them. It is SO hard when you are going through all that hurt, pain, and sadness, but through that is also growth. I work in adoption and see many couples that have gone through the same struggles. I think most would have liked to not go through the stress and pain that comes with infertility, but they all have said that God has His plan and His plan is much better than our plan.
